10. TAKE MY FIRE

NATIVE TONGUE
by Switchfoot



 

[Verse 1]
Everyday enemy tried to get the best of me
The enemy under my skin
Everyday enemy, my fatal flaw anatomy
Feeling like I just can't win
Sometimes I wish I didnít feel that much
Sometimes I wish I didn't need that touch, but
Everyday my enemy pretend to be a friend to me
No matter what state I'm in

[Chorus]
But youíre never going to take my fire
I cannot be tamed
No you're never gonna take my fire
It's burning in my veins, hey
You say the world is changing
But I still burn the same
No you're never gonna take my fire, take my fire
Let me burn now, yeah

[Verse 2]
The safety that you're selling me
One day be the death of me
A face like you just saw ghosts
Images on the box again
Takin' up all the oxygen
Tell me how we sunk this low
Ain't it coming, ain't the end in sight?
To steal it back like a thief in the night
Thereís my own sworn enemy
Faking and pretend to be
A wolf in a sheepskin coat

[Chorus]
But youíre never going to take my fire
In spite of all your rain
No you're never gonna take my fire
Itís burning in my veins, hey
You say the world is changing
But I still burn the same
No you're never gonna take my fire, take my fire, because

[Bridge]
I'm a fighter, a soul all-nighter
I'ma recognize the truth, Iíma recognize a liar
You're never gonna take my fire
True beginner, a loser and a winner
Part saint, part sinner, and all of me desire
You're never gonna take my fire
I'm a giver, a one arrow quiver
I've been sending my regrets down the river of fire
You're never gonna take my
My fire, a loose, live wire
I'm a one-shot rocket aiming higher and higher (And higher)

[Chorus]
'Cause you're never gonna take my fire, hey
No, you're never gonna take my fire, oh, oh, oh, oh
The ancient flame lit the spark back before I was young
When I'm speaking with the fire it's my native tongue
No you're never gonna take my fire, take my fire
Let me burn now
